Headliners

Stormzy

Stormzy appearing at this event

Before Stormzy released his platinum-selling #1 debut album, ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’ in February 2017, many would merely have called him one of the most promising rappers on the UK scene. Nearly three years on however, that description is utterly inadequate. A showman like no other, his remarkable ascent has been accompanied by his honest and relatable character. Known for evolving the underground musical landscape, as well as being a perennial political agitator, Stormzy is a true spokesman of black empowerment and social activism. He has become one of the UK’s most inspiring cultural figures and earlier this year, during his headline performance at Glastonbury Festival, he took the opportunity to highlight a plethora of social issues, including the injustice of young black children being criminalised in a biased and disproportionate justice system.

Liam Gallagher

Liam Gallagher appearing at this event

One of the pioneers of '90s Brit pop, Liam Gallagher rose to fame as the lead singer of the rock band Oasis, and later as the singer of Beady Eye, before performing as a solo artist after the dissolution of both previous bands. His erratic behaviour, distinctive singing style, and abrasive attitude have been the subject of commentary in the press; but he remains one of the most recognisable figures in modern British music.

Rage Against The Machine

Rage Against The Machine appearing at this event

Angry US hip hop rock / metal at its finest - socially politically aware lyrics, unrelenting guitar power and a hard, funky edge made RATM one of the most successful bands of the 1990s.
